Compared to Ian Schrager's penthouse with a lawn and the 3BR triplex townhouse, this latest rental listing at 40 Bond Street may seem paltry. A 1BR/2BA for $15,000 a month? Puh-lease. But think again! This "magnificent and rarely available apartment at downtown's most coveted address" will let you "redefine the way you live." The brokerbabble swoons over the "Pritzker prize-winning architects Herzog & de Meuron," the "legendary" developer Ian Schrager, and the "high-end functional artistry and superior finishes." Plus, you might even see an Olsen twin.
The 1,300-square-foot apartment has 11-foot ceilings, "Austrian smoked oak" finishes, a library/office, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Not a fan of the crazy graffiti-like art on the building's exterior? Then you may want to reconsider: the master suite's wet room is embossed with the pattern.
